Supporting Messenger International
We are supporting Messenger Int'l with 10% of our profits for March! We are focusing on a campaign called Traffick Watch.
TRAFFICKWATCH
 
Slavery is everywhere, and the United States is no exception. While most of our anti trafficking efforts have been aimed overseas we are shifting our focus inward for this impactful project. We have partnered with the Exodus Road to fund a program called TraffickWatch, or CHARLIE team, which vets and trains volunteers to recognize evidence of potential exploitation or trafficking. The tips acquired by these volunteers are then gathered together in a custom database system where they are analyzed and delivered to police partners.
The pilot training for this project took place in March 2015. After plenty of positive feedback from both law enforcement and volunteers the plan is to roll out similar chapters in ten to twelve key cities over the course of 2016.
The funds for this project will be used to:
  • Partially pay for the Command Center — an offsite location where we gather the volunteers, send them out, monitor their progress, and then re-group.
  • Purchase laptops for use during the nights of surveillance. These computers are used to gather and analyze the data through a customized database which uses a scale to rate the strength of the tip and deliver useful data to our police partners.
This project provides a unique opportunity for us to help bring successful rescue efforts to Messenger International’s hometown. Please join us in helping this investigative project thrive in the states.
